Forum: movies Subject: Re: FTP download option now missing

This works **sometimes**.

When you are viewing the film entry you wish -- look over to the left-hand pane where the download options are. At the bottom is the link for HTTP (and where the FTP link formerly was). Click on the HTTP link.

You will/should now see a text page with download options listed. In the URL/address bar of your browser it will read something like:

http://ia300205.us.archive.org/2/items/northwest_trail/

In the above example, I am viewing the entry for the film, NORTHWEST TRAIL.

Now, again in your URL bar, change the
http://
part to read
ftp://
and press return/enter.

If you get lucky, as I did with the above entry, you will be linked to the FTP option that the old, now removed, FTP link would have brought you to.

This worked for NORTHWEST TRAIL, it has *not* worked for others I have tried. ... But it's something.

Please IA - bring back our FTP links for all movies. We need them! Downloading large files has become Russian Roulette for us without it.
